We showed you the leaked image last week so it is no surprise that the DROID Bionic is officially in the Best Buy September buyer’s guide. It just came out, and the full specs are listed with no surprises. We just want the phone to just launch already. Main specs include a 4.3″ qHD screen, OMAP4 dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, VGA front camera, and 4G LTE. The price isn’t listed, but we are expecting $299 with a 2-year contract or $589 off contract.
If this phone didn’t have 4G LTE, it wouldn’t stand a chance against the upcoming release of Verizon’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S II. It still could be dead in the water, but I am still anxious to get my hands on one.
We have known about the White DROID Incredible 2 for a while now, and the recently leaked Best Buy buyers guide gave us further confirmation. Now all we need is the official announcement, and that has now been completed since Best Buy just gave us a press reelase. The only thing left is to head over to Best Buy starting this Sunday, August 21st, and hand over $149 for this gorgeous phone. The specs are the same as the black DROID Incredible 2, but lets face it, white is the new black.

Remember when we showed you some images of a rumored white version of the Droid Incredible 2? Well, a Best Buy buyer’s guide is showing they will have this exclusive white device at a decent $149 after contract. It’s said to be in-stock on August 21st, so it should be ready to purchase soon. This is good news if you’re a fan of colors other than the average black slate. It’s still a solid mid-level Android phone even if it’s lacking 4G. Anyone looking to rock the white?

Not too shabby, right? Now onto the deals: Wal-Mart is offing this 3.0 tab + 3 Bonus Games for $398 via their website or you can head on over to either Target or Best Buy, where you can pick up the same tab for $399 and they’ll throw in a $100 Gift Card for their respective stores.
Those are some sweet deals considering Android 3.1 for this device is already available for download and the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update will be released on August 25th.
Yesterday we announced the HTC partnership with Beats by Dre. Shortly after Best Buy announced a special offer for this weekend. They are offering 20% off any Beats by Dre headphone with the purchase of an HTC phone. Not a bad deal, but you have to be in the market for an HTC phone to make this work.
HTC recently announced their first NFC device and now have also officially partnered with Beats by Dre. This is certainly good news as anything to help set them apart from the competition is a good thing. Here’s a quick blurb:
Today marks an incredible day for sound and Beats by Dr. Dre. We are announcing a partnership with HTC, one of the world’s leading wireless manufacturers. With this announcement, our two brands are coming together to redefine the smart phone category and redefine the way that sound is heard.
Over the past year, Beats by Dr. Dre has continued to evolve from a headphone company to a cultural movement that is redefining the way sound is heard. We have strived to take studio-quality music into the hands of you, our consumers, across the globe. This partnership with HTC represents the next phase of our vision, placing the utmost importance on giving smart phone fans the opportunity to hear the highest-quality of sound possible. The Beats team, still led by Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine, will continue to manage Beats autonomously.
There will be a lot more exciting news to come and we will continue to keep you on top of all of the wonderful things happening within the Beats World. This is truly an incredible chapter for Beats and we are proud to have you with us. Let’s Go!

After hearing about it last month, we learned this morning that Best Buy has begun to take pre-orders on the HTC EVO 3D and LG Optimus 3D on the Rogers network. Canadians, this is an excellent deal – even better than if you were to purchase it through Rogers directly. The EVO 3D comes in at just $99 under a three-year contract, while the Optimus 3D is $49 with the same terms. The EVO even has an unlocked bootloader right out of the box. To those of you from the great white north, do you plan to upgrade?

Best Buy Mobile is running an exclusive sale for one day only, and it is a dandy. You can grab the Nexus S for free, and to top it off, we are talking all three carriers that it is available on – AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile. It can be either as a new contract or an upgrade. Sure the Nexus Prime is around the corner, but for those that are budget minded and don’t need the latest device, the Nexus S will take care of your needs. It was released 9 months ago, and it is still one of the best Android phones out there simply because it is a Google experience device.
You have until 11:59 CST tonight to make you decision.
